An Unveiled Countenance | Poem

Click thumbnail to view full-size

It was a collection

As of a house that preserves

An attachment without string

The embodiment of expression

An act from creation


A network in its diversity

A split in seconds

That executes within milliseconds

The handwriting on a wall

Defining one’s state


A doorway into appearance

That fashion a display

The showcase of that jingo

Which is hidden beneath?

And cannot be visualize


But register his presence

In a pattern most visible

And its interpreter, already installed

Though different with persons

Giving pronunciation that differs in spelling


An expression from the interior

That announces its presence

The opening as of a mouth

That reveals hidden words

An unveiled countenance
